Form & Verdict

Opened his account at Newbury (1m5f) in July and back to winning ways over C&D 33 days ago, showing a nice turn of foot to come from last to first in a 3yo-only event; largely progressive and may be able to cope with a 6lb rise.

Has a patchy overall record but his last two visits to Chelmsford have been winning ones, over 1m6f in August and 2m two weeks ago; those are clearly his best performances and left the impression he has more to give; seriously considered despite 4lb rise since latest start.

Has a mixed record in his eight starts but he won off a similar mark at Windsor (11.4f) in August and returned from a short break with a creditable fourth at Wolverhampton (1m6f, AW) last month; now drops back in trip/grade and has claims if things go his way.

Form & Verdict

Won at 80-1 in a maiden at Lingfield (11.6f, good to firm) in August on his second start; respectable fifth on Newbury handicap debut (1m4f) next time; disappointed when stepped up to 1m6f at Salisbury since but given a ten-week break (gelded) and retains potential now tackling AW for first time.

1m5f winner in France last summer; it took a while for new connections to get him to the track but he's capable of making up for lost time judged on his promising keeping-on third at Wolverhampton (1m4f) three weeks ago; interesting.

Very lightly raced 5yo who won on turf in France in 2022 (1m5f) and returned from long absence with pleasing C&D third for new stable in November; major player if able to build on that performance today but his run at Chelmsford (1m6f) in December was disappointing.

Got back near his best when scoring at Chelmsford (1m5f, Polytrack) in November, but he flopped there on his next outing and was never dangerous at Kempton last month; 2m may have stretched him last time but he's not easy to predict and others look more solid.
